James Boag's Premium Lager

J. Boag & Son Brewery began in 1853 on the banks of the Esk River in Launceton, Tasmania, Australia.  The river is the source of the breweries water.

This 5.0% ABV beer pours a dark honey golden in color.  It is well carbonated and has a large foamy white head that leaves sticky lacing of medium density down the glass.  The aroma is grain, straw and some lager funk.  The taste is deep grain, a touch of sweetness, a touch of tartness, a touch of lager funk.  There is only a slight hop bitterness.
